Playing Soccer at MRA!

Many sports and physical activities help develop physical literacy and movement skills for students. Soccer is an excellent sport that helps develop many of these skills all at once.

Physical literacy is defined as, "the ability, confidence, and desire to be physically active for life." (Shape, 2015) Physical literacy includes a long list of fundamental movement skills. The most essential of these are running, jumping, throwing, catching, kicking, hopping, skipping, galloping, and dodging. These skills are based in turn on a foundation of physical capacities called the ABCs of movement: agility, balance, coordination, and speed. In addition to these movement skills, spatial orientation and cognitive decision making are all practiced during the sport of soccer.

Soccer produces players who are adaptable, able to think quickly on their feet, and

develop plans of action. These are great traits for players to use in their lives during school, work, and relationships.

The students had fun applying their soccer skills in game situations. The students will be starting a new unit of basketball this week.
